In an earlier interview, Shahid had said that recreating a film which is still fresh in peopleâ€™s minds is a demanding job. "Creating a remake is damn tough. You have loved it for what it was but you can't go out there and copy it. It has to be a rediscovery," he told a news agency.
"The original was Arjun Reddy, based in Hyderabad and Bangalore. This is Kabir Singh, which is based in Delhi and Mumbai. May be Arjun and Kabir are cousins but they are not the same person. My journey is only to find Kabir Singh," he had said. The film is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga who also helmed Arjun Reddy. Kiara Advani will be seen playing Shahid Kapoor's love interest.Â
